Frameline San Francisco's 32nd
international gay & lesbian film festival opened in June with the
feature film Affinity. Now thanks to Logo the film will be
available to a wider audience.
Affinity is director Tim
Fywell's adaptation of the Sarah Waters novel of the same name. Set
in 19th century England, the film explores a romantic
relationship between two women separated by class and privileged.
Margaret Prior (Anna Madeley) is a
wealthy aristocrat who has recently been jilted and is mourning the
loss of her father. She finds comfort in visiting prisoners at the
bleak Millbank prison. There she finds mysterious Selina Dawes (Zoe
Tapper) channeling spirits and serving time for murder.
Love, obsession, and the supernatural
collide as Selina shares her secrets with Margaret.
Affinity has much to say about
attitudes, societal demands, and the proper place of women in 19th
AfterEllen.com said of the film: “As
a mystery that just happens to have queer women in the central roles,
the movie delivers.”
Affinity premieres on cable
channel Logo August 17th 10PM ET/PT.
